During the week
- Give each child a number one to 31 in the order of the register. When you take the register, get the children to say their number in French when you call their name.
- Play ‘Fizz Buzz’. The children stand in a circle and pass a toy or a ball. If the number is a multiple of two say ‘Fizz’ or if the number is a multiple of five say ‘Buzz’. If the number is a multiple of two and five, say ‘FizzBuzz’.
- Play ‘Shoot the Sheriff’. Put the class into groups. Each group has to stand up and call out the answer to differentiated questions. If they are the first to answer correctly they get to shoot someone on their team who then has to sit down. This continues until there is only one person left in that group (they sit down waiting for the final). The next group does the same and so on until there are five/six children who have won a round. The final can then take place. The overall winner can get a prize/house points, etc.
